  • Visited for the evening event at Ft. Verde State Historic Park and saw this old fort from a very different perspective - nighttime and lit up the old-fashioned way with lanterns and candles. This made...  more »
  • Can't imagine chasing indians when this fort was operating! Wonderful look back into Arizona's past. Able to see what the forts of the west were like. 
  • Tour the barracks and the doctors home. Historic period costumes, furniture and housing. A lovely afternoon stop on a warm day. 
  • The museum has some interesting displays with a short 20 minute movie to watch on the fort. There are 3 buildings you can walk through with period displays. The married officers quarters and the single officers quarters and the camp physician's house. All homes are self guided. The park personal were all very friendly and quite informative. They were all more than willing to take time to answer questions and explain the displays. There is a small book store on premise. Worth the stop!
  • I had high expectations for this place...and it really disappointed me. It's definitely not worth the $7. I love historical places, but this place was so EMPTY. I'm sure it's good at one of their annual events, but I went on a regular day. There were NO other visitors there. I took my time in the museum, but it's mostly stuff to read, rather than artifacts to look at. There's three or so historical forts to walk through, but it really doesn't take long, and they're all similar to each other. I was looking forward to getting to dress to clothes from the time period, because I had read it in a bunch of Yelp reviews, but there were no signs about it or anything. Eventually, I asked an employee about it, and she was able to show me where the clothes were and allow me to put them on. So we got our pictures...but it was a little awkward that I had to ask for it.
  • We came up on Fort Verde days. Admission was free but I don't think it was that much anyway. Staff were friendly and the displays were interesting.
  • Love the educational events they put on here, like History of the Buffalo Soldiers.
  • Very interesting
